Naturally an obsessive, quirky genius like Glenn Gould has enough ideas about what he likes in a piano to fill a book. And that book is A Romance on Three Legs: Glenn Gould's Obsessive Quest for the Perfect Piano. It turns about the famed musician is intent upon a specific instrument -- the Steinway CD 318 concert piano -- which is hard to get. Hilarity, or at least marvelously told anecdotes, follow.
